Mourning Alexandria

I am a history fan.

But, the main reason this little image caught my attention is actually because I’m a fan of literature.  A fan of knowledge.  Of books in general, of any sort, shape, subject, or size.

The thought of spending days (weeks, years) browsing and absorbing and immersing within the parchment fabled to exist there… well, that’s about as close as I get to a “dream come true.”

Sigh…
